New V•I Chip™ Through-Hole Packaging Option

Vicor has added a through-hole packaging option for all V•I Chip products. This is in addition to existing surface mount (SMT) compatible packaging, doubling the available range. This new option allows power designers in a broader range of applications to take advantage of the benefits of V•I Chips. Through-hole products are electrically and thermally identical to the SMT versions and are compatible with both hand soldering and wave solder techniques so they are perfect for fast prototyping or large production runs. Through-hole assembly facilitates multi-chip cold-plate or heatsink mounting and makes system assembly simpler,...

New 24 Vin Wide Input Range DC-DC Converters Launching this Month

The new 24 V input series has a wide input range of 10-36 V and are targeted for applications requiring 12 V or 24 V, which are typical for battery systems in vehicles. They can be used in a variety of vehicle applications including lighting, communications, portable test equipment, displays, and control systems. The low-noise ZCS topology greatly reduces the design effort and filtering costs required for power converters to meet agency conducted emissions requirements. The new series offers 16 different output voltages ranging from 3.3 V to 48 V with a maximum power...

New PFC FlatPAC Launching this Month

The new, power dense and flexible PFC FlatPAC uses Vicor’s field-proven VI-HAM and Maxi DC-DC convertersto deliver up to 575 watts of clean, reliable power. The PFC FlatPAC is a single-output power supply available with standard output voltages from 2 to 54 Vdc. It operates from an input of 85-264 Vac, includes active power factor correction (0.99 power factor), and meets EN61000-3-2 harmonic current limits. Internal filtering provides compliance to EN55022-A conducted EMI. It is available in Vicor’s ultra low profile 34.8 mm FlatPAC chassis, in either finned or conduction-cooled (CC) versions. Measuring 126...

New Off-line, High-density V•I Chip™ Bus Converter

October 15, 2007
By

Vicor has launched a high-voltage V•I Chip bus converter with a power density of greater than 1000 W/in³ (part number B384F120T30). This BCM™ module is a high-efficiency (>95%), Sine Amplitude Converter™ (SAC) operating from a 360-400 Vdc (384 Vnominal) primary bus to deliver an isolated low voltage secondary. The 12 V (nominal) output can be paralleled for high current outputs or connected in series to create a 48 Vbus, making the converter ideal for use in high performance server and telecom ac-dc SMPS and enabling major power density improvements in the post-PFC dc-dc stage....
